ENG 121-01 - Introduction to Shakespeare (Fall)

4 credits (Fall)
This course will help students develop foundational tools for literary analysis by focusing on the poems and plays of William Shakespeare. As we read these Renaissance texts, we will consider the ways in which modern literary theory can open up new ways of exploring meaning and signification within literary works. We will also discuss Shakespeare’s status as a cultural icon, the relationship between theatrical production and the printed page, and the ways in which generic classification affects our response to particular plays.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Arner
